MOTHER’S DAY, MAY 13, 2012

Mother’s Day is celebrated in the United States, on the second Sunday in May.  The origin of Mother’s day dates back to 1870 when Julia Ward Howe issued a “Mothers Day Proclamation”  as “a call for women to join in the support of disarmament”.  In 1908, Anna Jarvis of West Virginia created the current Mother’s Day Holiday. This was a way to make her own mother’s dream, of making a celebration for all mothers, come true.  Finally, in 1914, President Woodrow Wilson made it an official national holiday.   Mother’s Day, in the United States, is one of the biggest days for sales of “flowers and greeting cards”.   In the past it has also been one of the highest attendance days for Church worshipers.  Many people celebrate with carrying carnations or wearing corsages or boutonnières, pink if their mother is living and white if she is deceased.

Here at Especially Yours Florist we can help you Honor your mothers, grandmothers and “other special moms” in your life with many different arrangements, corsages, flowering plants and other gifts.  Plan ahead and place your orders early!
